Percona Live Keynote Speakers and Topics!

The countdown for the annual Percona Live Data Performance Conference and Expo in Europe continues with today’s announcement of our keynote speakers!

This three-day conference focuses on the latest trends, news and best practices in the MySQL, NoSQL and data in the cloud markets, while looking forward to what’s on the long-term horizon within the global data performance industry. Attendees will get briefed on the hottest topics, learn about building and maintaining high-performing deployments and hear from technical experts. Whether you are new to data performance or a senior DBA with years of experience, there are tracks for you. With 84 breakout sessions, 8 tutorial sessions and 6 keynotes there will be no lack of great content presented by top industry professionals. You’ll return home equipped with new tools and ideas to make your business run better.

The Percona Live Europe 2015 keynote speakers and topics include:

  • MC Brown, VMware Continuent, “Tungsten Replicator, More Open Than Ever!”: This talk will explain why a heterogeneous data replication solution is necessary to effectively move data between both databases and datacenters.
  • Kristian Köhntopp, Syseleven GmbH, “The Virtues of Boring Technology”:
    This talk will rely on experiences at Booking.com to highlight why “boring” technology makes sense for organizations that are busy managing growth.
  • Geir Hoydalsvik, Oracle, “MySQL 5.7: 20 years in the making!”: MySQL 5.7 is on its way to GA. This talk covers major developments including JSON, Optimizer Hints, Query Rewrite, Optimizer Cost Model, GIS, InnoDB, Group Replication, Fabric, Performance Schema, Sys Schema, Workbench and much more!
  • Mark Callaghan, Facebook, “MySQL and MongoDB for web-scale data management”:
    This talk will ignore debates over legacy vs. new, NoSQL/NewSQL vs. SQL or relational vs. document data models. I want a solution for sharded replica sets that is efficient, performant and manageable. I have a wish list for features. How close will MySQL and MongoDB get to making this easier in the next few years?
  • Peter Zaitsev, Percona, “Percona: Your Partner in Optimizing Data Performance”: This talk will focus on the growth of open source products in the enterprise and the importance of using the right open source tools and technology for each job rather than being locked into a proprietary solution. Learn how Percona is a true open source partner that helps you optimize your data performance to better run your business.
  • Keynote Panel featuring Jim Doherty, Percona (Moderator); Kenny Gorman, Rackspace; Mark Callaghan, Facebook; Ian Meyers, Amazon Web Services; and Peter Zaitsev, Percona, “The Next Disruptive Technology: What Comes After the Cloud and Big Data?”: With the Cloud and Big Data transitioning from “next big things” to broadly deployed operational technologies we think it’s a good time to look a few years out and speculate about what may prove to be the next big technology disruption. So what’s next?

Webinar on Read/Write Splitting with PHP

I’ll be presenting a webinar next Wednesday, January 23 at 10 a.m. (Pacific Time), about issues application developers should think about for scaling out read-query traffic using multiple MySQL instances in a replication pair.

Specifically, about the care we have to take because replication is asynchronous.  This means the slave  may not have current data at all times, so an application must choose to query the slave or the master dynamically.  As much as possible, we’d like to automate this choice so that application developers can be the most productive.

Please join me for this webinar by registering here: http://www.percona.com/webinars/readwrite-splitting-mysql-and-php

Percona welcomes Alexey Kopytov

Percona is pleased to extend a belated welcome to Alexey Kopytov. He actually joined us back in November, 2010, but we somehow overlooked blogging then about his switch from Oracle to Percona. Alexey has over six years of work deep in MySQL source code as part of MySQL AB, then Sun, and later Oracle. His first MySQL job was as part of the original High Performance group within the MySQL Support Team, working under Peter and Vadim. Alexey was the original implementer and maintainer of Sysbench, the tool we use everyday for our performance benchmarks. Now Alexey will focus on Percona Server and Percona XtraBackup, you may have seen his name in our recent Release Notes.

Alexey, a big welcome!

White Paper: “Scaling MySQL Deployments Efficiently” from Percona and Virident

Percona was working closely with Virident on evaluating tachIOn as solution for MySQL, and as result you can find whitepaper “Scaling MySQL Deployments Efficiently Using Virident tachIOn Drives”, available from Virident website. It was done as part of our consulting practice, but all results and numbers are certified by Percona. I personally really enjoyed performance and stability provided by tachIOn card, and you actually saw bunch of benchmarks results published on our blog which proves it.
Virident tachIOn will be on the list of our recommendations for customers looking to improve performance or building high-performance solution based on MySQL.
